This is a fair and balanced review of Lips No1 Hits- you may think is harse, but please read on- there are issues that you need to be aware of:
1/ You can use your lips 1 tracks from the original game- BUT you MUST swap discs in game- not good if having it at a party, as the load times take an age
2/ Not all previous DLC is currently working in this game. The game as of 1/11/09 is currently two weeks old and has already been patched twice, but still the problems exist- not good when people have paid money for content that either does not work and/or they have to pay for again (in some cases) to download.
3/ Content packs have already been released- supposed to be no.1 hits so who the heck is "colby caits"?? (UK users?)
4/ still only 2 singers can use mics- so don't bother buying the mic pack if you are a previous lips user (unless you want cheap mics for something like Beatles Rock band)
There are a lot of annoyed users on the lips forum on the official site and the disc swap issue seems to be the main issue/gripe.
At the moment, can't recommend this title- mine was accepted back by play as "not working as advertised". The Lips forums are urging people to post honest reviews at places where we bought the game from. Maybe once the problems are ironed out the game will be good, however knowing that INIS/Microsoft had plenty of time to make this game work properly before releasing it and their track record in responding to user queries, i wouldn't hold my breath.
So 2 out of 5 - hope my reasons have been honest- I don't want others having to have the dissapointment that we had in our house with this title.
Play- please post this review, as I feel users/buyer need to be aware of the above issues.
